EDP Award 2016 winners

The Winners are… June 1st afternoon, during drupa in Düsseldorf, the European Digital Press (EDP) Association celebrated the Winners of their 10th EDP Awards. With this Awards EDP honors the best developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems. Out of more than 150 entries finally 27 products were awarded with a Best of Trophy in its category (see box).

The EDP Association

The EDP Association was founded in 2006 by six trade magazines with main editorial focus on digital print and production. Now the EDP Association counts 20 member magazines all over Europe, covering 26 countries and reaching more than half a million of readers in Europe. One of the goals of EDP Association was the idea, to assist the technology-appliers in their task to find the right solution for his applications. Because not every high tech product eventually meets the requirements in a demanding production environment. Since 2007 EDP has evaluated and honored the best new developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems. Over the years more than 230 trophies were awarded to the best technologies and developments.

The judging process

As soon as a product is submitted the evaluation process starts and the members of the Technical Committee investigate the products´ features and qualities – by consulting other experts as well. At the end of the submission period the Technical Committee nominates the best ones in a category for the final judging round. In a special EDP General Assembly representatives of all the member magazines discussed the quality again – also under aspects such as value to the user, support and service and other arguments. They finally decided which product is worth of being awarded an EDP Trophy.

The next submission period for the EDP Awards 2015/2016 has started by April 1st 2016 and will end for products officially introduced till End of February 2017. From September you will find on this homepage an online Submission Form and more details on the proceedings for the 2016/2017 EDP Award session
